20 secondary schools in Narok County were awarded e-Confident status under the African Digital Schools Initiative (ADSI) programme being implemented in the County. The programme leads schools through 4 stages of whole school digitisation from e-Initial to e-Enabled to e-Confident and, finally, to e-Mature. When the participating schools reach e-Mature stage, they will be classified as Digital Schools of Distinction.
The school principals received certification in recognition of their lead roles in supporting their teachers to utilise and integrate digital technologies in their teaching. The programme has the enthusiastic support of the Narok county education authorities, the Teachers Service Commission as well as the schools’ boards of managements and parents’ associations.
The teachers in the 20 schools are following a rigorous ICT training programme and have already successfully completed the first two cycles - 1st on Technology Literacy and 2nd on Knowledge Deepening, currently the teachers have gone through the Knowledge Creation Cycle which is the third and last phase of the ADSI training. Teachers are now competent in incorporating various ICT tools in their teaching which will enrich student learning.
The African Digital Schools Initiative (ADSI) Programme is funded by Mastercard Foundation, Canada.
